Conferences, retreats, and employee appreciation programs

Conferences • Retreats • Employee appreciation events

Breaking the Cycle of Stress / Martial Arts for the Mind is ideal when you wish to motivate and inspire your people, or reward a group for outstanding performance. Employees and managers express deep gratitude, not only for the life-changing ideas shared, but to the company that thinks highly enough of its people to provide programs that benefit them both professionally and personally.

If my previous company had shown this level of interest in my development as a manager and as a person, I never would have left.

— C.E., Manager of a 4-star Kimpton Hotel in San Francisco

The ideal length is a 3.5 hour morning session. We can say from many years of experience that your group will consider this program one of the most meaningful and personally helpful trainings they have ever attended. The most frequent comments you’ll hear afterwards from attendees:
